Same-sex marriage, #BlackLivesMatter, the DREAM Act, the People's Climate March, End the New Jim Crow, Occupy Wall Street, the fight for a $15 minimum wage-these are just a few of the remarkable movements that have blossomed in the past decade, a most fertile and productive era of activism. Now, in a visually rich and deeply inspiring book, the leaders and activists of these and other movements distill their wisdom, sharing lessons of what makes-and what hinders-transformative social change.

When We Fight, We Win! weaves together interviews with today's most successful activists and artists from across the country and beyond-including Patrisse Cullors-Brignac, Bill McKibben, Clayton Thomas-Muller, Karen Lewis, Favianna Rodriguez, Rea Carey, and Gaby Pacheco, among others-with narrative recountings of strategies and campaigns alongside full-color photos. It includes a foreword by Rinku Sen and an afterword by Antonia Darder.

When We Fight, We Win! will give a whole generation of readers the chance to celebrate and benefit from a remarkable decade of activism-a decade that shows just how ripe these times are for social transformation.
